This thread is specifically with reference to a James Kirk born about 1757.
He died on 11 July 1813 in Quaas, Dumfries, Scotland.
He married Mary McLean.
She was born about 1755. She died on 19 December 1830 in Tweedshaws, Dumfriesshire.
James Kirk was buried in July 1813 in Moffat Churchyard, Dumfries (Verified by memorial inscription).

There are various prospective families he might have originated from:

James Kirk born 1733 married to an Elizabeth Broun/Brown born 1738
Alexander Kirk born 1718 Tynron, Dumfries
Alexander Kirk married to a Janet Baxter 15 January 1750
Alexander Kirk married to Janet Walker, with a christening of a James Kirk 24 December 1750 in Tynron, Dumfries
Alexander Kirk married 15 June 1759 to Katherine Hunter in Tynron, Dumfries
Alexander Kirk married to Ann Millar 13 August 1722 in Tongland, Kirkcudbright
Alexander Kirk married to Grizel McMonies 22 April 1729 in Tongland, Kirkcudbright

Does anyone have any direct, substantive proof they are linked to any of the above please?
